Pop In Place Food Crisis Support
The Pop In Place have launched a new Food Crisis Project. We have gained some limited funding to provide one off crisis packs for people in the Parish in a critical situation, with no food.
We would like to extend our thanks to Jagtar and Nisa and Bere Regis Church for their kind donations to enable this to commence. If you feel that you want to support this we ask for donations of money, rather than food so that we can be very specific about what is put into the packages, ensuring it is of most use.
Cheques can be made out to "Pop In Place" and handed into our Friday Cafe as can cash.
If you need this service please email popinplace@gmail.com in confidence, and we will help.
